Conditional Admissions Program (CAP)


Don’t let your low TOEFL score stop you from being accepted to an American university!
If you are an excellent student, but you do not have a TOEFL score (or if your TOEFL score is low), you can still be accepted to several universities through the ELI’s Conditional Admissions Program (CAP)!
Through CAP, the University of Delaware (and several partner universities) offers admission to qualified international students with a condition: they must first improve their English language skills by attending the ELI. 
Once CAP students meet the English language objectives required by their university programs, they begin their regular university coursework—and no TOEFL exam is required!


In CAP, students take advantage of 31 hours of instruction each week. This includes:
  • Listening/Speaking course (10 hours per week)
  • Reading/Writing course (10 hours per week)
  • Private tutoring (2-3 hours per week)
  • Language laboratories (5-6 hours per week)
  • CAP Connect course (3 hours per week)
In addition, CAP students enjoy many special services and activities, including:
